Travel Blogs from Venice
We made it to the Venice airport in the late afternoon and found our way to drop off our rental car. We were then next on the bus to take us into Venice!! Once we we got off the bus, it was time to find our hotel/apartment. Since I had never been to Venice I had no idea how hard this was going to be, but from stories I had heard I knew it might take a while. Well, it was a very long while. We eventually asked a few people where ...

Now we're back in our hotel, double-checking that everything's correctly packed for our morning flight to Paris. I'm excited to be going back, but at the same time know it means the end of the vacation part of our trip for several months to come.

The two policemen asked me to accompany them to the rear of the bus where the senior starting taking photos of the A-frame.

Historical Traveler Reviews Domina Home Giudecca Venice
My husband and I found this hotel to be perfect! It is in Giudecca and is a 5 minute waterbus ride to St. Marco Square. The hotel is nestled in a residential area and therefore gives you a better feel for life in Venice. The hotel was clean, comfortable and offered L'Occitane products. The staff was friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast that is included with the room consisted of pastries, breads, meats, cheeses, yogurts and fruit. If you are looking for a place in the heart of the Venice action, this is not the place. If you are, however, looking for a place off the beaten path with in-minutes access to all the tourism of Venice, this I would recommend Domina Giudecca!
My fiancee (actually became my fiancee in Venice) and I went to Venice for 3 nights at the beginning of November. This hotel was absolutley lovely, you could not fault it in anyway.
The view across the harbour to Saint Marcs Square was amazing. I initially worried about not being on the main Island, but this was definatley not a problem, in fact it added to the whole experience. You can get a water bus from Palanca, literally a 2 minute walk from the hotel, to Saint Marc's Square.
The breakfast is simple, and is taken in a veranda, which is bright and most welcoming.
We could not fault this hotel and Venice was a perfect location for getting engaged!!
Go there, you will not be disappointed
Just returned from 2 weeks in Europe and this was our favorite hotel. Exceptionally clean, modern and comfortable. Generously sized room for Europe. And the staff went out of there way to make our stay enjoyable. A great value for Venice (we paid about $140 US per night).
Just come back from Venice having stayed at the Domina Prestige for 3 nights. Great location, approx 400 metres from the Palanca vaparetti stop. We felt it was much better to stay on Giudecca and to just travel the 3/4 stops to San Marco, literally 10/15 mins away. The view from the quayside overlooking the stretch of water was superb. Even things like seeing the children skipping home from school adds to the local feel of the island.
We have just come back from venice and stayed in the Domina Prestige Hotel on the Giudecca island which is a couple of stops from the San Marco Piazza.
We would have give this hotel five stars but for the construction that is currently going on around them. Other than that, this hotel may be the best deal in Venice. The location is great, a couple of vaporetto stops from most major tourist destinations, and away from the insanity of Piazza San Marco. Very helpful staff. Quiet at night. Nice rooms (somewhat smaller than they look on the website), a bit hard to find on foot, but once you know it, quite easy access to Palanca vaporetto stop. A few cafes and shops right there in Giudecca, otherwise, you'll be taking the boat to most places.
Great, small hotel in a lovely, quiet location/
Guidecca is a beautiful, quaint place to stay away from the very crowded main tourist area of Venice. This hotel is simply lovely. Quiet, clean, and quite pretty. The front desk staff, particulary Marco, were very helpful. Would return to this hotel in a minute.
Fantastic value, great little hotel
It is in a quiet residential area on the Giudecca, the island across from Venice island but easily within reach by the frequent "vaporetti" (water bus). The stop to use is the Palanca and then it's only a two minute walk. Water Bus 82 from the Plaza Da Roma takes 20 minutes. The hotel is built to a really high standard, beautifully designed in an old building, the rooms are extremely comfortable. Breakfast is in a conservatory and is extremely good. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The price of the hotel compares very favourably with Venice island hotels. On the whole, we were very pleased and will definitely stay there again.
Quiet, comfortable and friendly hotel
Just returned from the Domina hotel, having had a fantastic weekend in Venice. The desk staff were extremely helpful, providing an excellent recommendation for dinner on our first night (at the Aquarama restaurant near Zattere).
The hotel is quiet but very comfortable with modern furnishings and a stylish, if small, bathroom. The only slight disadvantage is that the hotel is on the island of Giudecca, which means there's a slightly longer waterbus trip to the main sites (approx. 10 mins) and it is a very quiet part of Venice, so not many bars/ restaurants nearby.
Breakfast was a typical continental buffet.
All in all, we were very impressed with the hotel for the price we paid and would certainly visit again.
Great style off the beaten track
We have just had our second stay at this hotel and cannot praise it enough. It is in a quiet residential area on the Giudecca, off the beaten track and in a trendy up and coming area. The hotel is beautifully designed in an old building, the rooms are extremely comfortable and well designed. Breakfast is in a conservatory and is extremely good. The staff are friendly and very helpful. It has a small bar area and a well stock mini bar in the rooms which is handy as the Giudecca is a 'bit quiet'. On the down side, the hotel could really do with room service, if only for a light snack and there aren't any stunning views of Venice. On the whole, we were very pleased and will definitely stay there again.
